The new Ford Fiesta was the first car in the UK to feature Fords MyKey technology, which enables parents to place restrictions on younger drivers to promote safer driving.
Ford-exclusive MyKey enables owners to programme a second key – usually for younger drivers – that restricts the top speed of the car, reduces the maximum volume of the audio system, and even disables the audio system altogether if driver and passengers are not using safety belts. It can also prevent the driver from deactivating safety technologies such as Active City Stop, which can help mitigate or prevent low-speed collisions.
Ford MyKey works by recognising different keys for the same car and then adjusting the vehicle settings according to the owner's requirements. It also enables owners to programme chimes to sound at set points between 40-80mph, prevents seatbelt reminders from being disabled and delivers an earlier low-fuel warning.

The Ford MyKey system is available from TC Harrison as part of the new Ford Fiesta's safety and driver assistance package. This also includes Ford SYNC Emergency Assistance and Ford's Intelligent Protection System with seven airbags. MyKey is also available on further selected Ford's in the new car range.
